Serra routs Geibel; Gladiators get crushed

| Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2011

A long bus ride did little to deter coach Bill Cleary and his Serra Catholic girls basketball team.

The Lady Eagles won their fifth straight game in impressive fashion Monday with a 73-12 Section 4-A road win over Geibel.

Senior forward Chelsea Griffiths scored 17 points to lead Serra (5-2, 2-0).

Lady Eagles guard Jaime Tedesco added 14 points with three 3-pointers to help further frustrate Geibel (1-6, 1-1), while Lauren Smith added 10.

After opening the season with a pair of losses, Serra has caught fire and outscored its past five opponents by a combined score of 321-153.

The Lady Eagles return to action with a non section game at Keystone Oaks at 7:30 tonight, before returning home to host Frazier at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Section 5-AA

Seton-LaSalle 83, South Allegheny 28 — The Lady Rebels (7-2, 2-0) remained undefeated in section play with an impressive performance, while coach Ashleigh Hays' Lady Gladiators (0-9, 0-3) failed to earn their first victory of the season.

Jackie Tyskiewicz scored a team-high 10 points to lead SA.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
